The location of the place is pretty good at Recoleta within walking distance of metro points and major thoroughfares; but the service could definitely be better! first day - i reported my AC broken (not heating) but they could not send in a repairman till next day! of course my request for another room elicited the usual response- "all other...

this was by far the worst hotel experience i've ever had. 1-there is a constant, disgusting smell in the apartment, no matter how long you keep the windows open, it never goes away. 2-if you will visit buenos aires in winter and stay at this hotel, be prepared to freeze at nights. they have an a/c and even if you...

If you're looking for good price with great benefits, this is the place. The apartment is roomy and fully eqquiped, located in a great neighborhood, plenty of restaurants and attractions. The building is modern and well kept. Although it not literally a hotel but rather an apart-hotel, with room service just 1x or 2x a week, a just love it!

This hotel provides great value if you're not looking for the feeling of being "catered to" or pampered. The towels are very old, no bathroom amenities, the beds are quite thin and the sheets have been washed but show age stains. We stayed on the 5th floor, and apparently, the housekeepers gathered in a Room across ours every morning and... More

These apartments are beautiful. Each one has a balcony either overlooking the cool street or the gorgeous courtyard in the back. The rooftop is so private and beautiful with the lap pool and plenty of space to have alone time, do a little yoga, or soak up the sun. There is a workout room, steam room and sauna. Loved my...

The room was spacious, quiet, clean and well equipped. The kitchen had fridge, cutlery, plates and microwave. The staff speaks English and is very helpful, they gave us a map of Buenos and answered all questions. Guests can also use gym on the 10th floor.

Apartment was exactly as represented, no more no less. No extra fees or charges. Super nice management. Hot tub not very hot or clean. Great pool and pool area, sauna, and gym. Loved the location and nearby restaurants, Melo and Rodi.

Front desk staff not helpful and a bit rude. They don't care to solve your problems with the accommodation. Been in two different apartments and none of them was fully equipped as described. One of the apartments wasn't well cleaned when we get in, and they refuse to make a better job after we complain. The location is good and... More

This is more a residential hotel located right in the heart of upscale RECOLETA neighborhood, close to main shopping streets, subway, and Recoleta's cemetery and cultural center. Easy access to all areas, plenty of good restaurants around. The Hotel doesn't offer room service and the cleaning is made once or twice a week, but the room is great, with a... More

Staying in Recoleta

Neighborhood Profile
Recoleta
Characterized by the French-style mansions which are the legacy of its aristocratic past, Recoleta is the true “Paris of the South.” Walking around this neighborhood is an experience like no other in Buenos Aires: its streets are lined with elegant apartment buildings, exclusive boutiques, and former mansions turned into high-end hotels and embassies, which exude an alluring air of sophistication and class. You'll also find a rich cultural scene centered on the National Museum of Fine Arts, the National Library, and the Recoleta Cultural Center; as well as some great shopping spots, like the Buenos Aires Design Mall with an artists' fair set up in Plaza Francia every weekend.
